Seine-Maritime Hotels

With its green and rolling countryside and dramatic alabaster cliffs, Upper Normandy’s Seine-Maritime department has inspired artistic minds for centuries, from Oscar Wilde to Claude Monet. Smattered with pretty coastal resorts and characterful old towns, it’s a region known for its grand chateaus and rich ensemble of historic architecture. Within its communities you’ll find all the traditional facets of French life, from pavement cafés to bustling markets, whilst the rural surrounds beckon cyclists and walkers alike with kilometres of picturesque trails.

Things to see

Its highly ornate façade the subject of many of Monet’s paintings, Rouen Cathedral’s iron spire dominates the skyline of Upper Normandy’s capital. Its vast interior is equally as impressive, with its intricate stone work and vivid stained glass windows. Another of Rouen’s landmarks is the Tour Jeanne d’Arc, once the town’s castle, and famously the site where Joan of Arc was imprisoned and trialled in 1430 and 1431. Originally built in the early 13th century, what remains is a stocky cylindrical tower. A few minutes from Etretat, Palais Benedictine is home to the Benedictine Distillery - producer of the famous centuries-old herbal liqueur of the same name. The flamboyantly ostentatious palace-meets-factory features Gothic and Renaissance architecture, whilst its lavish interior houses a trove of artworks. If you’re one for snooping about grand abodes, then Bois des Moutiers is another must-visit. The romantic Arts-and-Crafts style manor sits within 30 lush acres, adorned with azaleas, magnolias, and other floral finery.

Hotels in Seine-Maritime

Whatever your taste, needs, or budget, the hotels in Seine-Maritime offer a vast and varied choice. You can take your pick from chandeliered chateau and manor retreats, set within prim flowery grounds, luxury boutique hotels occupying historic townhouses, or modern chain name establishments offering a simply stylish stay. For a more personal touch, guesthouses and B&Bs are in plentiful supply too. The larger hotels in Seine Maritime typically feature the most amenities, with properties offering everything from on-site restaurants and swimming pools, to indulgently luxurious spa facilities. For the budget traveller, there’s no shortage of cheap and cheerful digs either.

Where to stay

With its picture perfect promenade and pebble beach, Etretat is best known for its awe-inspiring chalk-white cliffs. A popular but peaceful seaside resort, the small town is home to many souvenir shops and seafood restaurants, tucked within quaint old buildings. The port town of Dieppe offers a similar sort of deal, and boasts an imposing 12th century chateau. Whilst the coastal resorts offer an abundance of tranquillity and charm, a hotel in Seine-Maritime’s capital puts you amongst the majority of Upper Normandy’s historical attractions, as well as many shops, restaurants and museums. Rouen’s focal point is undoubtedly its cobbled medieval old town, known for its preserved half-timbered townhouses.

How to get to Seine-Maritime

Those flying into the area can land at one of several nearby airports, with Rouen Airport and Le Havre – Octeville Airport being particularly convenient gateways for most visitors. Many of the coastal communities, including Dieppe, are reachable by boat, whilst the department as a whole is well-served by France’s railway network. If you’re headed to the capital, Rouen-Rive-Droite Station is likely to be your stop. Seine-Maritime is also easily accessible by car, with a trip from Paris taking around an hour and a half via the A 13.
